I suspect that the hysterical American accusations against Huawei, that they are using the technology to spy on customers, is likely a case of projection. The real concern being that anyone buying Chinese information technology won’t be vulnerable to American spying via the back-doors American companies install for use by the American intelligence community.

Maybe I’m paranoid, but given the history of American spying I can’t be alone and many potential customers would probably also think that US technology was the greater espionage risk.

The strategic importance attached to its destruction is reflected in the rare example of bipartisan cooperation between the Trump administration and congressional Democrats to deny global markets to the company and to starve it of essential components. This past weekend, House Democratic speaker Nancy Pelosi joined defence secretary Mike Esper and secretary of state Mike Pompeo in again warning other nations to cut their ties to Huawei.
